USA and Route 66

The Ultimate Road Trip ‘Coast to Coast’ on ‘Main Street USA’ from either Florida or New York to Santa Monica, where in addition to the highlights of Route 66, our Coast to Coast tours also include either – New York, the Finger Lakes, Niagara Falls and Lake Erie to Sandusky – or – Orlando, Savannah, the Blue Ridge Mountains, Nashville and Indianapolis before joining the Classic Route 66 Tour in Chicago

Route 66 passes through a diverse cross-section of American scenes, from the cornfields of Illinois all the way to the golden sands and sunshine of Los Angeles, passing by numerous landscapes including the Grand Canyon, the Native American communities of the desert Southwest, the small-town Midwest heartlands of Oklahoma and the Ozarks, as well as the gritty streets of St. Louis and Chicago. Whether you are motivated by an interest in history, feel a nostalgic yearning for the “good old days” Route 66 has come to represent, or simply want to experience first-hand the amazing diversity of people and landscapes that line its path, Route 66 offers an unforgettable journey into America, then and now.

When is the best time to drive Route 66 – The season starts in May and runs through to the end of October. Before or after that, you risk running into cold weather, especially in the midwest and the higher elevation portions of 66.

Weather – Really anytime between mid-May and mid-October you should have a lovely drive. There's always a good chance you'll see rain, as Route 66 is more than 2,400 miles long through varied terrain. Tourist Traffic – Route 66 is growing in popularity, and not only cars but even large tour groups in buses are travelling The Mother Road. While 66 is inherently never going to be as busy as any given Interstate in America, chances are you'll encounter more traffic in June, July and August. From the first week of September on, there will be less people on the roads as the summer's over and people return to work. In our opinion, the best time to drive Route 66 is Mid September to Mid October, but then Route 66 is a drive of a lifetime no matter what time of year or what the weather's like.
